Table 5 Multivariate linear regression analyses of the energy-adjusted DTAC and serum biomarkers of oxidative stress (n = 175)

From: Dietary total antioxidant capacity is inversely associated with depression, anxiety and some oxidative stress biomarkers in postmenopausal women: a cross-sectional study

DTAC (μmol/day) Coefficient standard β P-value
TAC (mM) 0.006 0.9
MDA (µM) − 0.37 < 0.001
Ox-LDL (ng/l) − 0.04 0.5
SOD (U/ml) − 0.13 0.07
  1. Adjusted for age (year) and years since menopause (year) education (year), waist circumference (cm), physical activity (MET min/week), dietary supplement use (yes/no), dietary intake of fiber (g/day), energy (kcal/day) and coffee (g/day)
  2. Serum biomarkers of oxidative stress were log10 transformed
  3. DTAC dietary total antioxidant capacity, TAC total antioxidant capacity, MDA malondialdehyde, Ox-LDL oxidized low-density lipoprotein, SOD superoxide dismutase
  4. DTAC was adjusted for energy intake by residual method
